You use the administration screen in combination with the Design Window to determine the output areas (windows), define the pages, and position the windows on the respective pages.
After opening a form (Create/Change), you use the Administration Data screen to determine the Administration information in the header data and set the Basic settings of the form. In addition to this Administration screen with its page and window data and several editing and display functions, you can call a design window to graphically design the page layout. To call this design window, choose Layout. The system always synchronizes these two windows whenever you execute an action on one of them.
On the administration screen, you edit the different pages and the respective windows in two structured areas. There, the system offers the most important menu functions on pushbuttons.
